Scary For Kids

Child’s Eyes

Child’s Eyes is a very short tale of horror about the things that lurk in the dark. The things that adults can’t see.

Child's Eyes

Through the eyes of a child, the world is very different. Every child has a fear of what is lurking under their bed. They fear what is hiding in the closet or peeping in at them through the little crack in a door that’s standing ajar.

A doctor would tell you that children are much more perceptive than adults. Their eyes are able to see the things that an adult’s eyes cannot see. When you grow up, you become blind to the dangers that creep and crawl through the darkness. Children can see what is truly there. They see the monsters.

If you were to look, for just one night, through a child’s eyes, you would know what true fear really is. If you were able to see again the things you only dimly remember from your childhood, imagine how terrifying that would be. Can you remember those sleepless nights, burrowing under your covers, shaking and shivering in the darkness, afraid to move, afraid to make a sound, afraid to breathe?

Those are the nights that adults forget. The nights when you would cover yourself completely with your blankets, so that the monsters couldn’t see you. The nights when you would hold your breath, so the monsters couldn’t hear you. The nights when you would lie as still as possible, so you wouldn’t attract their attention. I know you remember those nights.

The only thing that would protect you was light. Bright light. You slept with the light on. That made it safe. That meant they couldn’t get you.

Teenagers are caught in the middle. They still sense that something is there in the darkness, but they try to convince themselves it’s just their imagination. They’re embarrassed to sleep with the light on. Teenagers have forgotten that light is the only thing that can keep them away.

While you’re sitting there in front of your computer, do you think that the light from your monitor will be enough to keep them away?

Sorry. It’s not.

Now look behind you with a child’s eyes and try not to scream.

  • I’m 11, btw, and when i finished reading this i turned around, normal. I like the dark, it comforts me…it likes me.

  • I turned alright to see DUN DUN DUN…

    Lol scary story time!!!
    One time I was laying down and heard foot steps outside my door. Then I heard a loud bang outside my door. I buried my self in the covers and I finally fell asleep.
    When I woke up there was a hole in my door. It looked like someone stabbed it with a knife. The next morning I asked bro bro (my brother) if he was trying to prank me that night and he shrugged and said no.
    It still creeps me out. We had to replace the door. But I remember something that I just thought of… we forgot to lock the doors that night. So maybe someone broke in and tried to get through my door as I lock it every night. Thankfully no one was harmed. We don’t know who broke in and we will never know. Thank god im the only person with a room on the 1st floor and our stairs are kinda hidden. I hope he or she will be caught one day. If you read this thank you!!
